Orphan Gift Banks
Sprawling across two continents and 11 time zones, Russia boasts of being home to numerous Olympic athletes, celebrated composers, and literary giants. Its landscape is dotted with Russian Orthodox golden-domed cathedrals intended to catch God’s attention from heaven. Yet children are abandoned at alarming rates in Russia, leaving orphanages overcrowded and understaffed.
The Boaz Project partners with Russian leaders who desire to serve children in the orphanage system through Bible Discovery classes, after school programs, job training, and humanitarian aid. In addition, some visit baby houses and hospitals where infants have been abandoned to hold and nurture them.
Birthday and Christmas presents and short-term teams from the States assure these children that they have not been forgotten.
“Every time The Boaz Project came to my orphanage… It was more about the love and care we got that we never got from anywhere else. Although, it was nice to get toys and socks. I always cherished my socks.”Snezhanna
Your small group, church, child’s school, MOPS group, etc. could be involved bringing hope to orphans by having their own bank campaign. Of course, we welcome donations any time, but to go with our teams delivering gifts this Christmas, we’ll need it by December 20.
